Where have you seen most roadkill?

You might think we have a lot here. But those who travel can tell you. Compared to bigger metros in parts of the country with more wildlife-supporting rainfaill, we are strictly minor league when it comes to the volume of animals killed by high-speed car traffic.

Another reason to like Spokane.

Seemingly suicidal Spokane squirrels

I have to say, throwing yourself in front of a slow-moving bicycle is a pretty poor strategy for ending it all.

Fortunately, it did not work in either of two instances today on my ride home. I missed them.

Maybe things will look brighter to those two rodents in the morning.

But perhaps I have it all wrong. Maybe those squirrels were simply playing, in the words of a great “Far Side” cartoon, “Rusty's in the club!”
